Delicious! I think I used too many basil leaves (didn't measure) but it still came out great. I use it on my all of my lunch meat sandwiches and it gives it that extra zing to make it taste gourmet. I love that it's low fat, low calories with a very strong taste. Thanks for the great recipe - 6/2/10
